A Goldendoodle is a Poodle hybrid that is a cross-breed of a Poodle and a Golden Retriever and may demonstrate any combination of traits from those two breeds. Poodle hybrids have become very popular in the past few years. They play a big role in the current designer dog trend. The cross with the Poodle is usually because of the Poodle's non-shedding coat. The experimentation of these hybrid or designer dogs has not yet been recognized by the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club. The key to cross breeding to purebred dogs is what is called hybrid vigor, the breeding resulting in a healthier dog with superior genetic constitution can come from dogs purebred for so long that they have common genetic disorders. This cross breed is closely associated with the Labradoodle. Most Goldendoodles donít shed, or shed lightly and can be hypoallergenic. These dogs are very devoted to their family; they are social dogs - happiest when with people.
